Haiku Poem – 天国への階段

starry sky
silver steps to clouds
into the past

(Scott version)
ほしぞら に むかし の きおく ぎん の おね

(Michiko version)
ほしぞら に つづく かいだん ぎん の おね

One of the most beautiful hikes on Oahu is Stairway to Heaven. The trail is located on the Eastside of Oahu. The trail starts at base of a mountain and follows a ridgeline to the top. What makes the hike special is it consists of nothing but stairs. There are over 3,500 stairs that lead to the top. Some sections are flat while others are near vertical. Along the way there are rest stops and old buildings to explore. At the top there’s an abandoned military communications building to rest in. The view from the top is amazing as well, on a clear day you can see over 60% of Oahu. Sadly though, it is illegal to hike the trail.
